Many wounded veterans received a hero's welcome when arriving at Huntsville International Airport Wednesday.

People gathered at the airport to kick off Heroes Week 2017 organized by Semper Fi Community Task Force of North Alabama.

Veterans spending the week in the Tennessee Valley will be treated to a yacht cruise on Lake Guntersville, a Marine Corp Birthday Ball and a celebratory farewell at the end of the week.

"We're here to celebrate our heroes, welcome them and show them love and support," said Cheryl Doucette with Semper Fi Community Task Force. "They give everything for us, they give their lives for us and we're here to give back to them."
